  • This place used to be very popular, but it has shrunk over the past few months. There's some shops which are open but most of them had closed down. The main attraction for this place is the food court. Having a lot of food choices, it is the main reason why this place is still surviving. Parking is available but do cost parking fees.
  • Food quality and variety is good. It has its own parking lots so it's quite convenient.
  • New world park is a Hawker centre. Nice n cheap food. Noon is still cooling because the ceiling is very high.
  • Great food choices. What to eat here: ice kacang, nasi lemak, curry mee
  • The only reason this place deserves a 4 star rating is because of its famous ice kacang special. This stall has been around for 3 generations and it definitely lives up to its reputation! The ice kacang is made with rose syrup, evaporated milk, sarsi and various topping. Be sure to add ice cream and banana! Best ice kacang ever! Besides that, remember to try the Penang style chee cheong fun. It is just plain chee cheong fun drizzle with shrimp paste (虾膏) and chilli sauce. However some people kinda dislike the shrimp-y flavour though. Also from the same stall, be sure to try to Penang style steam Otak-otak! This is amazing! So far one of the best ones around.
